After work, my bike was calling my name. As it was too late for caffeine, I headed off to my friends: the wheat field and the power pole.
One of the advantages of touring around on a bike is how easy it is to jump off and take a couple of pictures.
For once, the wind seemed to be at my back most of the time, well, except for one section. No worries. I geared down and enjoyed the scenery. After all, my bike isn’t built for speed, but comfort. With its upright seating, it’s more of an “enjoy the scenery” sort of ride.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer evenings, too!
Last night, I biked to the Hillsboro airport to watch the sunset. Thanks to low clouds, the sunset was over before it started, but still made a nice backdrop for some Queen Anne’s lace.1
Saturday evening, I went on a bike ride to end the day. On the way back, I stopped at some favorite spots to take some pictures.
I like riding a bike because it’s so easy to take a quick detour. I can take a picture or two, enjoy a chilly beverage, pick handfuls of blackberries growing along the path, or just notice the view. I did all today.
May your detours be as enjoyable as mine. :-)
